This amazing mother planet gives us everything we need;
And in return we damage her, sit back and watch her bleed.
You would not hurt your family, stand by and watch them cry;
So why succumb to apathy, always turning a blind eye?
We don't know who and what we are, foundations built on intricate lies;
We sense it's wrong but don't rise up, entertaining ourselves as our homeland dies.
We switch on the TV soaps and news, soaking up pretence and distraction;
We drink and shop our lives away, rarely taking unselfish action.
We cheat ourselves more than we know, deny our strength and power;
When will we realise lifes value? Regret waits in the final hour.
We blindly sprint towards the future while pointlessly obsessing over the past;
Rarely living in the here and now, our lives slip by so very fast.
The knowledge is out there for the taking, it's always hidden in plain view;
You can not expect to heal this mess, looking anywhere but inside of you.
It does not take a huge effort to acknowledge and to care;
Believe, live and express it, watch your purpose grow from there.
We all come from the same place and there we are going back;
So recognise your fellow souls, think twice before attack.
Judgment only reflects on you, no gain from it at all;
Please take some responsibility to improve life for one and all.
You have a path and tools to walk it, the possibilities are profound;
Why would you waste your life away? Why would you wait 'til next time round?
It's never too late to change perspective, for change is the only constant here;
The seeds you sow now will shape your life; wisdom is choosing love over fear.
